Enom Namespinner only suggests .photography domains

Recommended Posts

I know that some place I've screwed something up, but have been looking all day with no luck...

 

For some reason, in the Register Domain search, no matter what you type, it will check to see if that domain + .com is available. Then ALL the suggested domains under it are various versions of the name, with the .photography extension. So no .com, .org, .net, .us, etc.etc... Only .photography and obviously, that's a pretty specific domain extension.

 

Can anyone point me to the right place to control this and even remove .photography from the suggested list.

Hi,

The suggestions are returned by eNom's namespinner engine and compared against the TLDs configured for that currency (Setup > Products/Services > Domain Pricing). This way, only the domains you have configured pricing for will be suggested. If you were to remove .photography from your TLD Pricing, it would not be suggested.

 

As for why the namespinner engine seems to be favouring .photography so heavily for you, I couldn't comment, perhaps the search term is related to photography in some way? You can check the raw results from the namespinner using the module debug log: https://docs.whmcs.com/Troubleshooting_Module_Problems

It doesn't matter the term I use, it ONLY responds with .photography extensions.... Here is what happened when I searched "educationtrain".

It doesn't matter the term I use, it ONLY responds with .photography extensions...

not necessarily, most terms I searched on your site gives other TLD options, e.g for whmcs or supersonic...

 

rplALbN.pnghgUXGf4.png

 

you only seem to have added 6 TLDs so far, and it's far more likely that there will be more .photography domains available than .com/net/org etc... perhaps if you had more TLDs added to domain pricing, then there'll be less occurrences of .photography domains showing in the suggestions, or if you moved .photography to the end of your TLDs in domain pricing.

 

even if you search for 'education train', then when you get to the fourth page, you start getting non-photography options...

296E7N4.png

 

you would think that logically some of the above results should appear before the .photography results - but I don't use eNom or suggested domains, so I can't help specifically with eNom... that may be better pointed towards Support or perhaps eNom themselves.

I'm having a similar problem.  I have a customer that has the business name of "Choice Security".  If he comes to my site and tried to register 'choicesecurity.com", it says it's taken, and it gives these silly suggestions:

choicesecurity.design
choicesecurity.bike 
choicesecurity.space
choicesecurity.club
choice-security.design
choice-security.bike
choice-security.space
choice-security.club
choiceinsurance.design
choiceinsurance.bike

However, much more appropriate options like choicesecurity.biz or choice-security.com are available.  Why would we suggest they get choice-security.bike, when choice-security.COM is available?

I might as well turn off 'Suggested Domains" if it's going to give such stupid suggestions.  Isn't there a way to weight it so it tries more popular TLDs first?

Hi @ScottN,

eNom's Namespinner does provide a relevancy "Score" value which WHMCS used to order the results with the most relevant results first: https://www.enom.com/api/API topics/api_GetNameSuggestions.htm

You can check the scores assigned to each domain by eNom by capturing the suggestion data under Utilities > Logs > Module Log. Whilst we can't influence the score eNom assigns to a domain, you can use the Spotlight TLDs feature to ensure that specific TLDs are always shown at the top of the results page.

Thanks @WHMCS John.  Not having any luck, unfortunately.  I made .com, .net, .biz, .us and .info my Spotlight TLDs, made them "hot" and saved.  I then tried to register a name:  dotcomdomainpeople.com.  It told me it is available, and I see the new boxes under that, to show me availability for .com, .net, .biz, .us and .info.  But it keeps giving me these silly domain suggestions that nobody would ever want:

dotcomdomainpeople.space
dotcomdomainpeople.design
dotcomdomainpeople.club
dot-com-domain-people.space
dot-com-domain-people.design
dot-com-domain-people.club
dotcomdomainpeople.bike
dot-com-domain-people.bike
dotcomdomainperson.space
dotcomdomainperson.design

Can you tell me how to turn off this "Suggested Domain" feature?  I only see that it can be limited to 10, but not 0 or off. Since it's offering ridiculously stupid TLD options, I might as well save the embarrassment and just disable the suggestions.

i'm not an eNom user, but I don't think you can disable suggestions with a lookup provider if there isn't a setting to do so... though you may be able to remove them in the template, or by using a hook.

Hi @ScottN,

If you are dissatisfied with the suggestions provided by eNom, you can switch to using ResellerClub's suggestions instead. Or WHMCS can perform a standard whois lookup of the same SLDs for different TLDs.

The lookup provider can be changed via the Setup > Products/Services > Domain Pricing page.

If you do switch to ResellerClub, please ensure your account is configured under Setup > Products/Services > Domain Registrars and your IP whitelisted for API access first: https://docs.whmcs.com/ResellerClub#Configuration
